Indian craft continues to suffer a long, difficult death in the global market.
Crafts in India continue to languish in the hands of the same producers and traders who dominate the global craft market.
But there is a growing backlash among the young, who feel the Indian craft has lost its way.
The issue is of great import to the international craft community.
There are signs of a change.
India’s Crafts and Crafts of India, a group that tracks Indian craft, said that its trade volume has increased by nearly 10% from 2012 to 2017, while the craft trade in India has also seen a 15% increase in the past four years.
Its president, Pratibha Patil, told The Times that craft has been in decline since the 1980s, when it was dominated by the likes of the Ravi Shankar and R.M.S. Bachchan.
She also said that Indian craft is being priced out of the global marketplace.
The group says the number of Indian crafts sold in international markets has fallen from 1,500 to 400,000 between 2011 and 2016.
The craft industry has also experienced a decline in quality and availability.
The average price of Indian craft rose from Rs.2,500 in 2009 to Rs.3,000 in 2016, according to the Craft India website.
Craft is also increasingly becoming a commodity, and Indian crafts have been the subject of increased trade speculation.
The International Craft Trade Organisation, which monitors the global trade in craft, says that India’s craft trade volume is now “at a low point” compared to its rivals.
“It is clear that the craft industry in India is at a low price point.
However, this is a good thing because it can be helped if it is made available at reasonable prices,” the group’s director general, A.B. Nair, said.
Patil told the Times that she believes the craft market has also been hit by a lack of competition.
“The craft trade is a monopoly.
It’s the craft that is not being valued at a fair price, the craft is the one that is the victim,” she said.
“There is no other way that the Indian market can grow.
In the future, we are going to have to develop our craft.”
The craft community, like the craft-loving craft enthusiasts, have long been suspicious of the craft craft industry.
In a recent article in The Times, R.K. Singh, founder of India’s Craft Association, said, “It is difficult to argue with the integrity of craft in India.
Craft is the glue of our society.”
However, craft enthusiasts and the craft makers who sell their wares in India say that the country is lagging behind its global peers in terms of quality.
While there are many Indian crafts in the world, the quality of their waives and their quality is generally poor, according a report in Mint.
According to the study, Indian crafts are generally better than those in the United States, China, Germany, and France, while India’s overall craft quality is below those of the European countries.
“Indian craft, if you look at the craft in terms for the quality, it is not good.
There is nothing in it that is good.
It is mediocre,” said Nirmala Ghatak, founder and CEO of Mumbai-based craft maker, Nirmal Ghatuk.
Ghatak told The Post that her shop is not selling a lot of the goods it sells to foreign clients, like Indian crafts.
Nirmal said that many Indian craft shops do not know how to use an internet site to locate a supplier.
A few months ago, Ghatakh said, she found out that her store had not found a distributor for her wares.
Despite this, she said, it has become a problem that many craft shops in the city are not making a profit.
“It has become difficult to survive as we don’t know how much we make,” she added.
M Sharma, the owner of the local craft shop, said the quality is so poor that he does not even make a profit for himself.
I don’t have enough money for my shop, so I sell my products online.”
